Hi, I have a Lenovo y50-70, and it's power adapter died (there are no output volts in the connector to the laptop).
I bought a replacement online, which turns out to be a non-original power adapter, but the specs match (correct connector with signal pin, and correct volts and amp rating).
But this adapter does not work in the y50-70. I get a popup on the screen saying it isn't supported. Funnily enough the new adapter works fine in my lenovo t440p, and the t440p's adapter works in the y50-70.
Is the y50-70 really picky? And are there any tricks to get an adapter to work with it?
